Historical EAC walk in downtown Bangkok

So far, around 25 Scandinavians have signed up for the walk and boat ride on Sunday 1 November 2015 visiting the old EAC head quarters, the new Asiatique and the old cemetery where many Nordic people are buried.

The group will start from restaurant Mango Tree, Charoenkrung Soi 36, at 2 pm for an initial briefing before walking the about 300 m. to the old head office of the EAC – which can only be seen from the outside as it is not safe to walk inside.

Then a boat will depart from the pier at Oriental Hotel next door to Asiatique. From there the group will walk about 500 m. to the protestant cemetery to hear about some of the Scandinavians who have made a contribution to history in Thailand and are buried there. From the group will walk back to Asiatique where we identify some of the buildings that used to be part of EAC’s activities in the past and finaly the exploration will end with dinner in Joe Louis, which used to be a bachelors’ mess for young EAC staff.

Monday 26th October is last day for signing up – there will be no participation fee as participants will pay for their own coffee and dinner. Reservations can be made to: [email protected]
